The sending organization, the ILS Joint Management Public Education Institute, Secondary Vocational and Trade School, Adult Education Institute in Békéscsaba has been running accredited post-secondary vocational trainings in the fields of tourism, catering, social and humanity studies and business industry since 1994. The participants of the project are students of tourism, catering and restaurant management and logistics, aged 19-24. They started to attend two-year courses of the school in 2014.
Our partner organization, North West Academy of English, Derry, Northern Ireland has been involved in managing EC founded projects, mainly Life Long Learning Programmes since 2003 and has already gained much experience in organizing and carrying out such projects.. They are specialised in the organization, management, administration, monitoring and evaluation of work experience programmes. The North West Academy of English Limited undertakes the task of organizing the work placement, language course and socio-cultural programmes for the participants.
The aim of the project is to provide language course and work placement for 10 students in tourism, catering and logistics related jobs in the framework of an 8-week-long programme in an English speaking environment. With the help of this project the participants have the opportunity to gain professional experience, they can improve their knowledge of English in authentic working situations in the target language country. Therefore, students will have a better understanding of the habits and requirements of foreign guests, business partners and foreign companies in Hungary. Having finished this programme they will have better chances on the labour market than those who do not have the possibility of gaining foreign experience.
In case of positive evaluation the project starts on 20. 06. 2015. The 10 participants arrive in Derry in June, 2015 after finishing the preparatory course online. The North West Academy of English Limited prepares their reception in Derry. The participants will have full board accommodation at host families. During the first week they will take part in a one-week language course at the end of which they will get a certificate. From the second week on they will work in different offices or hotels and restaurants in Derry chosen by NWA. Students of tourism will do professional work at offices or hotels, waiters and students of catering will participate in the professional work of catering units, students of logistics will have a closer look at the logistics related jobs in hotels and restaurants. During the 7-week-long work placement supervision, monitoring and evaluation will be done by NWA. The intermediary organization will organize socio-cultural programmes during the stay and the ILS will keep in touch with both the participants and the partner organization via e-mail and phone. At the end of the programme the workplaces will issue a reference letter for the participants. Besides, each participant will receive a certificate from the NWA justifying their language competence and a work placement. Students will arrive home in August 2015. At the end of the programme the partners will evaluate the project together and disseminate its results on different levels. The ILS will prepare the final report. The project closes on 20 June 2016.
